I noticed. Would be nice if he'd credited me too (I did some work here), but oh well.

No argument there, you did the work in finding this issue, I merely passed on the information.

He likely just credited me since I was the one reporting to him and just to publish the commit as quickly as possible, and most regular contributors don't really mind about being mentioned or not in the change log since there are tons of these small changes.

If you want to make sure that you're credited in the change log, may I suggest that you cut the middleman and contact directly with Warboy through the OpenXcom forums or the Discord channel?

So, the blocks are:

January
February-March
April-June
July-September
October and onward

Am I right?

I looked this up, and yes this is correct. The code looks like this:

  //now add alien race
  //race depends on type of activity generated and
  //progress into game
  stage=0;
  if (months_gone >=1) stage=1;
  if (months_gone >=3) stage=2;
  if (months_gone >=6) stage=3;
  if (months_gone >=9) stage=4;

A few dozen make a better case for refining that third decimal place.
They call me Zombie because I don't sleep, as I slowly struggle to climb this heap,
of corpses, data points, and trials, but from the top - I'll see for miles!

Yes. Although I didn't do a byte-for-byte comparison the values I did check were the same. ;)
